On a happy note. :)

Just got back from an awesome weekend of scrappiness! :) I got a record 18 pages done over 3 full days and can't wait to share some of them here on the blog. Roree Rumph has been busy too... and here are the beautiful cards she made to inspire you. So vintage, and lovely and dimensional. Just love them.





Happy Note card
1. Make a 5" square card from yellow cardstock.
2. Cut the Apron Strings patterned paper to 5" square, distress the edges with a file, and adhere the panel to the card front.
3. Cut the Advertisement patterned paper to 4 1/2 x 3/4", scallop along one edge, distress the edges with a file, and adhere the strip to the card about 3/4" in from the left edge.
4. Cut the Borders patterned paper to 4 1/2 x 3 1/2", distress the edges with a file, and adhere the panel to the card over the scalloped patterned paper strip. Hand sew a couple of cross stitches at the corner where the papers meet using a sewing needle and blue embroidery thread.
5. Cut out a journaling spot from the Noteworthy patterned paper, distress the edges with a file, and adhere it to the card.
6. Apply the rub-on quote along the right side of the journaling spot.
7. Wrap the card front a few times with twine, tie a bow, and trim the ends.
8. Apply the "happy" and "note" cardstock stickers, the scalloped cardstock sticker, and the yellow Tin Pin metal badge to the card. Apply the heart rub-ons to the metal badge.
9. Adhere the large rose cardstock sticker to the card using 3-d foam adhesive.




Hello Friend card
1. Make a 5 1/4 x 4" card from yellow cardstock.
2. Cut the Fabric Store patterned paper to 5 1/4 x 4", distress the edges with a file, and adhere the panel to the card front.
3. Cut the Advertisement patterned paper to 1 x 4", scallop along one edge, distress the edges with a file, and adhere the strip to the card about 2" down from the top of the card.
4. Cut out a journaling spot from the Noteworthy patterned paper, distress the edges with a file, and adhere it to the card.
5. Apply the "hello" cardstock sticker and letter stickers to say "friend" on the journaling spot. Hand sew a small stitch on each side of the "hello" sticker using a sewing needle and blue embroidery thread. Apply a small heart rub-on to the "hello" sticker.
6. Wrap the card with the yellow scalloped ribbon, tie a bow, and trim the ends.
7. Adhere the typewriter cardstock sticker to the card with 3-d foam adhesive. Then, adhere the small rose cardstock sticker to the typewriter with 3-d foam adhesive.
